Whenever you have more HDMI cables- than ports on the TV, you need an HDMI switcher. The switcher gives more Inputs and connects to the TV using one HDMI cable. I am pulling up a link to that device now.

I just noticed you're in Australia, so let me pull up a source where you can purchase it there. Sorry about that.

There is a 3 port switch at the link below you can purchase for $40:
